My Wacom Intuos3 tablet won't switch into pen mode

For some reason my Wacom tablet pen has stopped making the mouse pointer move - everything else seems okay. I have an Intuos3 - Windows Vista and it all used to work fine but I notice it just doesn't switch automatically from mouse mode to pen mode (pointer moves fine with the Intuos mouse).

    Pen worked great on new Vista computer then quit working on anything but my Paint Shop Pro Program. It was completely disabled to use like a mouse as I did before. Now, it won't work on my Paint program either but the mouse will. I recently updated the Vista drivers.

I had the same problem with my Intuos3 on Vista. Tech support suggested the following.

Do this.....Go to Start--->control panel---->system(in classic view)---->device manager--->click on "human interface devices"--->then click on "Wacom virtual HID driver" and right click on that and disable it. Your computer will ask you to restart and you will want to do that.

Everything works fine now.

After a lot of reading and testing I decided it looked like a driver problem as everything else seemed to be working. I had uninstalled my current driver and installed the latest one on the website without any improvement, so I hunted on the Wacom support site and found a new one, and tried that. I installed it on top of the newest one - not uninstalling again. It worked.

To be honest I don't really know what I did - this new driver was somewhere on the Wacom site but when I looked again to try and identify it I couldn't seem to find it. The driver's name is 'Wacom Tablet_608-4a.exe'. The latest driver for my tablet (Intuos3) is 'pro605-7_int.exe'

But at present the pen moves the mouse again - which is great.

SOURCE: My Wacom Intuos3 tablet won't switch into pen mode

The winning answer came courtesy of Mr Benedikt Schmitt of Wacom Europe, who offered the following solution: from the Windows Device Manager, disable the “Wacom Virtual Hid Driver” device. (Go to Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Device Manager, find the driver, right-click it and choose “Disable”.) One reboot later (welcome to Windows-land, circa 2008?), everything works as desired. Pressure and tilt sensitivity inside Photoshop still work, and the pen functions just fine in the rest of the Windows desktop. The absolute mapping makes it an absolute pleasure to point quickly and precisely. It makes my laser mouse feel rather clumsy navigating a large 24′ screen!

My Wacom pen doesn't work. The blue light on the tablet turns green when I touch the pen to it, but the cursor doesn't move on the screen. I thought that the tip needed to be replaced, but after changing...


Does the mouse work (on the tablet)? What happens when the side buttons are pressed do they work? Try un-installing the Wacom driver (Pen Tablet Utility) and Install the latest version from www.wacom.com and see if that helps.

My wacom pen does not work at all, the mouse on the tablet does though


on some older pens, the barrel can spin out of position. If your barrel turns, it can mess up it's function.

Turn the barrel until you hear or feel a clicking into position and try again.

If that doesn't work, move wacom cable to a different usb port. worse case, replace pen.

Wacom intuos3 pen is not working


A few hours ago Wacom released a new driver 6.1.2-5 for the Windows 7/Vista/XP operating systems. I was having the same problem. Hopefully this will be a permanent fix!

2. Open the Wacom Tablet Properties from the Start menu.
3. Click on the Mouse tool
4. Click on the Mapping tab halfway down the screen
5. Change the mode from Mouse to Pen

Wacom Intuos3 stopped working when I upgraded to Leopard


I did solve it myself. Having downloaded the new drivers off the Wacom website, I hadn't realised they were still sitting on my desktop waiting to be installed. Once I found the folder and opened and installed it everything worked fine!
